Testimonials

"Philip and his team handled my employer nominated permanent residency application. I don’t do detail, forms or legal processes, they frighten me and push me way out of my comfort zone. Philip is meticulous and hand held me through every step of the application, explaining the what and why along the way. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and I have no hesitation in recommending him to others. Since my client experience I have been partie to the growth of Strategic Migration via a number of business networking groups and am always impressed by their professionalism and dedication to delivering for clients and supporting the business community."

"I have known Philip Summerbell when he first advised me for visa information. Since then he has assisted me to obtain two working visas (I am a UK citizen). I can only speak highly of Philip and the information and knowledge he has of the Australian immigration system. I would highly recommend him to anyone venturing into these unknown waters and wish him well for his future endeavours. I will certainly be working with him at the next stage towards my naturalisation process."

"Thank you for securing our future!

Philip Summerbell and his team at Strategic Migration made our dream to live in Australia a reality. We came across Philip by way of referral and we thank our lucky stars every day. Philip and his extensive knowledge of the Australian immigration system gained our family permanent residency in Australia, which would have been tricky for us if we didn't use his services. There is no doubt that our current circumstances would have been different (and most unfavourable) if it wasn't for Strategic Migration. They gave us 5 star service all the way!

"Like most trying to achieve a successful immigration outcome, we found the world of immigration confusing and even scary. We were concerned that we would not be able to continue building our lives together in Australia, that our baby girl would miss out on growing up here and how this could affect her future, and that we would need to close our successful business and start over again in the UK.

"Luckily we were referred to Philip Summerbell of Strategic Migration. He secured our future here in Australia via a spouse sponsored visa and made the process so quick and easy. But most importantly, Strategic Migration allowed us to live our dream and comfortably got us through an extremely stressful period of our lives. We wouldn't recommend using anyone else!"

"I would like to express my sincere appreciation. I have dealt with Mr Philip Summerbell and Mr Tony Tan, they were there every time I had question or asked any advice. I did receive straightforward and clear guidance throughout the process of my 457 and 186 visa application, and finally received a good news which is the 186 permanent residency grant. The best part was when I needed more information and consultation, they don't mind to spent some of their valuable time for a meeting face to face to explain and giving guidance how to achieve Australia permanent residency. I would recommend using Strategic Migration, their knowledge and understanding of the system is great. Thank you very much for everything."
